To say my dearest sister, Brigitte is an artistic visionary is an understatement!
When she and her husband Nikola purchased their 88 acre farm in Erin Ontario, it was difficult for anyone to see her vision. At the time it was in great disrepair due to negligence and disregard, inhabited by a hippy commune who seemed to have little concern for anything beyond a day-to-day existence of sloth and leisure. The little farmhouse, barn and various outbuildings were at risk of crumbling and the surrounding land was overgrown and littered with clutter, trash, and other unmentionables.
Through grit, focus and determination they have transformed the property creating a serene place of beauty, a flower farm complete with a historic barn, green houses, cottages, and views of nature that extend for miles. A place once existing only in her imagination has now come to be. August Tree Farm now offers…
Custom wedding florals begin with a consultation with each couple to discuss their favorite flowers and their dreams for their big day. The beautiful blooms are grown from seed to harvest in sustainable flower fields. Each bouquet and arrangement is custom designed inspired by the wishes of the couple.
August Tree Farm is our preferred vendor for wedding florals. Marquee is never quite as beautiful as when adorned with Brigitte’s custom blooms!
SEASONAL FLORAL WORKSHOPS
Reserve a spot in one of Brigitte’s many floral workshops where you will tour the gardens, learn about the flowers and how they are grown, try your hand at harvesting and then create your very own flower arrangement to take home. My mother, sister and I have attended. We had so much fun, learned a lot and had a chance to spend some time in nature. I highly recommend!
